Your Hot-Tub in the Summer
In the middle of the summer heat, the last thing that you want to do is sit in warm hot-tub water. But, if you want to get the most out of your hot tub, you should not restrict yourself to only using it during the colder months.
Your hot tub doesn’t have to be hot. Full stop. Yes, you read that correctly. You can actually use your hot-tub to cool off in the summer.
This might seem odd at first, but you’ll find that dip in your hot-tub during summer can be a relaxing experience.
Here are some easy tips on how to enjoy your hot tub in the middle of summer:
Lower the temperature of your spa
This might seem like a simple tip that goes without saying but many people don’t realize that their hot-tub can be made cool just by changing the temperature.
If you set the water temperature to somewhere between 82-85 degree Fahrenheit, the water will feel cool to the touch.
Be conscientious of when you cover your spa
On sunny days, you should keep your spa covered when you’re not using it. While covered, the insulation will keep the water cool and won’t allow it to absorb the heat around it.
At night, when it’s cool, run the spa with the cover off. Natural evaporation will lower the temperature of the water and make it the perfect temperature to relax in.
Turn the heater off
If where you live gets too hot or humid, you can turn off the heater of your spa completely. This will ensure that your spa stays cool enough for you to enjoy.
Check to see if your spa has a summertime mode setting. This setting will reduce the filter time in your spa. Too much circulation will increase the temperature of your spa.

My spouse and I have been talking with one another for some time to determine if we should install a hot tub in our backyard. I think that I will get into contact with a pool contracting company in the near future in order to inquire about what they can provide. I like the part of your article where you mention the importance of covering the spa on days where it is sunny in order to reduce the heat of the water rising.
